OUR WEST BRIDGFORD SALES TEAM

Having been one of the original founders of the company Gary is still at the centre of all the big decision making. Prior to Estate Agency, Gary was a professional footballer with a large part of his career being at Notts County and whilst on the face of it the two industries could not be further apart, he has managed to bring many of the skills required in his sporting life in to the company. After 22 years of exciting times with the company, Gary is looking forward to shaping the next 22!

Interests

It perhaps goes without saying that Gary enjoys sport, with his favourites being golf, skiing, running and football (watching). Keeping fit through running has led to Gary taking part in the 2016 London Marathon. He is also a big fan of a holiday!

Eileen is our new addition and a very welcome member to our busy West Bridgford sales team she has worked in residential sales for many years, she started her estate agency career with Val Shakespeare as a sales receptionist in her first independent agent and has now come full circle. Eileen then went on to work for a large corporate agent, where she spent many years working in different offices in diverse markets which were both stagnant and buoyant and has used this experience to home in on her negotiations skills by using comparable evidence to obtain the best price for the Seller in differing market values. Eileen can therefore adapt to the constant moving market place. Being a caring and understanding person Eileen is happy to listen to her clients stories and build up a working relationship with them. Eileen has competed in a couple of half marathon’s and spends her spare time either in the gym or on the gin!
